Aidan at City Hall - Additional By-Law Enforcement


On October 26, 2016 Aidan introduced and moved a Motion at City Council titled 'Review of the Current By-law Enforcement Service Levels in the McMaster University Neighbourhoods'.  The Motion was carried. 

City staff are now directed to review the current By-law Enforcement service levels in the McMaster neighbourhoods, and report back to the Planning Committee before the 2017 budget deliberations begin with:

  1. Options for increasing the levels of by-law enforcement in the McMaster neighbourhoods including additional staff, re-prioritizing enforcement efforts to allow reassignment of current staff, or any other practical options; and
  2. Detailed cost estimates for each of the increased service level options along with possible funding sources for any option which would result in increased expenditures.
